The Revenge Of Tyler Hansbrough?

Evidently, blood is not the exclusive domain the men's basketball teams involved in the Battle For Tobacco Road...

Duke’s players didn’t let anything—not the sight of blood gushing from the mouth yet another injured starter nor the second-half comeback from their fiercest rival—keep them from claiming sole possession of the ACC regular-season championship.

Tricia Liston scored 15 points to help the seventh-ranked Blue Devils beat rival North Carolina 69-63 on Sunday, clinching the ACC crown outright while giving fifth-year coach Joanne P. McCallie her first road victory in the rivalry.

Freshman Elizabeth Williams added 13 points and nine rebounds for the Blue Devils (24-4, 15-1 ACC), who had already clinched the top seed in this week’s league tournament in Greensboro.

It didn’t come easily. Facing a team they had beaten by 40 points earlier this month, the Blue Devils blew most of a 17-point lead in the final 13 minutes before holding hold off the Tar Heels (19-10, 9-7) in the final minute.
